Connection Attribute Properties

Connection Attribute Properties

You can configure properties for each connection attribute that you define for an adapter. You can specify whether an attribute is required, provide the default, maximum, and minimum values for the attribute, or specify a list of possible values for the attribute.
All connection management user interfaces, including command line programs, validate the values set for the properties of a connection attribute.
The following table describes the properties that you can set for a connection attribute:
Attribute Property
Description
Name
Name of the connection attribute.
Display Name Display name for the connection attribute.
Description
Description of the connection attribute.
Data Type Data type of the connection attribute.
Default Value Default value for the attribute.
Min Length
Minimum length for the value of the attribute.
Max Length
Maximum length for the value of the attribute.
Encrypted Indicates whether the attribute is encrypted.
Mandatory
Indicates whether a connection attribute requires a value.
If you set the Mandatory property to true but you do not display the attribute on the connection management user interface, you must set a default value for the attribute.
Hidden
Indicates whether the attribute can be hidden.
Has Dependent Fields
Indicates whether the attribute has dependent fields.
Allowed Values
